Introduction with Ray Manzarek, cofounder of The Doors
"This collection of interconnected short stories is beautifully captured by a small cast of narrators. Tom Weiner portrays the dark spirit of a troubled serial killer known as the Freeway Slasher in the first story. His grim tone puts listeners on the edge of their seats throughout. Lucia Sherman steals the show with an expertly underplayed performance in which she offers the chilling character of Damon, a mysterious hitchhiker. The stories work well with each other, and the selection of narrators is perfect, each offering a new chapter to the tale in his or her own dramatic way. Emerson creates a thrilling ride down Interstate 40." (L. B. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine)
